Kingston man scores in losing effort at President’s Cup

September 1, 2014

Tim Bergin scored a goal Sunday but it wasn’t enough to help the Kahnawake Mohawks to the bronze medal at the President’s Cup lacrosse tournament.

The Mohawks spotted the St. Albert Miners a three-goal first-period lead and they could never quite catch up as the Rocky Mountain league champions defeated Kahnawake 7-5 in the game for third place at the Canadian senior B championship in Nanaimo, B.C.

Bergin’s goal late in the second period lifted the Mohawks to within 5-4 but Kahnawake could never tie the score.

A charter member of the Kingston Cavaliers juniors playing in a national-championship tournament for the third year in a row, Bergin had seven goals in eight tournament games and his 14 points tied for third-best on the Kahnawake team.

Bergin plays for the Ottawa Axemen and was added by the Quebec champions for the seven-team national competition.

Kahnawake had the best record in the preliminary round, 5-1, but the Mohawks were defeated 6-4 by the Ontario champion Six Nations Rivermen in the semifinals. When they met previously the Mohawks had defeated St. Albert 9-6 in the final game of the round robin.

Onondaga Redhawks defeated Six Nations 9-7 in the gold-medal game Sunday night.
